How does the Aberdeen last fit? I wear a 9d on the Hampton last...what would I wear for the Aberdeen?

Looking great!! 

 

When possible can you re-post your shots of the J Crew suede/shell saddle shoe? I was looking for them but cant seem to find them.

gaseousclay I believe that both the Aberdeen and Hampton fit true to size, so a 9D.

The ravello NST on the Aberdeen (TSM has them - sometimes) is one of my favorite Aldens. I was fortunate enough to snag my size some months ago.

I don't recall having seen a pair of whiskey NSTs on the Aberdeen, but certainly one could be out there . Anyone own a pair?

Looks as if they have both the Ravello and Whiskey on their site along with Cigar. There's a nice looking pair on ebay for $525 in #8, but there 10.5 and I take 11.

Only the Ravello on Aberdeen last.  Cigar and Whiskey is Barrie last.  I have the Ravello NST and Whiskey NST.  Would love the Cigar.  I also have a pair of NST on Barrie last in Color #8 headed my way from the irregular list at TSM.

 

 

 

See Ya,

I traditionally haven't been able to wear the LHS because of tightness in the vamp (I have a high instep)...

Do you think going up one width would solve this issue? I see a 9.5EE LHS in cigar available on The Shoe Mart (I wear 9.5E in Barrie). Worth a shot?

Worst case scenario is it costs you $7.00 to try it.  As rare as Cigar is I would try it.

 

Good luck!

I had the same issue with the LHS, as I too have a high instep...   I had the vamp stretched three times to accommodate my instep, and now they fit perfectly... and are quite comfortable...

What are ya'lls thoughts about the Alden 993 Saddle Shoe in black shell on barrie last?  I like black shell, but I already have a pair of NST slips ons and a pair of LHS slip ons in black shell.  I don't have anything in black shell lace ups.

 

See Ya,

Steve

We're your lhs shell, Calceo? I was under the impression that shell didn't stretch much...

Shell doesn't stretch much from wearing them, but there is some stretch (IMO)... and they certainly stretch if you put a stretcher on them... That seemed to work well for the three pairs of LHS shells I have...

A decent cobbler can also stretch shoes for you.
